In honor of what would've been the great Philip Seymour Hoffman's 51st birthday today's edition of "Beauty vs Beast" at The Film Experience is dedicated to what is probably his last truly great performance, that of Lancaster Dodd in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. I vacillated back and forth on PSH over the years - I was really annoyed when he won the Oscar for Capote over Heath Ledger in Brokeback - but my god I feel sad when I think about all the performances we're never gonna be getting from him. We're blessed to have what we do, though.
What's your favorite PSH?
Mine is super easy...
... but there are at least a dozen I adore.
